About this event

Hear from an expert on Lithium-Ion Batteries, Electric Vehicles and Supercapacitors on how engineers are trained at University. Innovation and team working skills are high on their list and shape the syllabus and methods used to generate these skills.  Traditional analytical subjects are still required for a sound technical base for decisions, but marrying these with practices that result in good innovation is the present challenge. This is being realised at the leading teaching establishments.
